Picture a forest scene and a beautiful woman dressed in silk and glistening jewels. Gliding gracefully through the moonlit wood she reaches an opening just in time to catch a glimpse of a handsome stranger dressed in….well, you get the story, girl meets boy and all that shabang. Well, guess what, it doesn’t have to be a fairy story, that girl can be YOU… with a little imagination and a large helping from Andromeda Raine.

Harriet Gausman: For those who do not know, how long have you been in SL and when did your business begin?

Andromeda Raine: I came to Second Life 4th January 2005, and started creating February. Tattoos are where I began.

Harriet Gausman: Butterfly Island is an incredibly beautiful place. What has been your inspiration behind its development?

Andromeda Raine: Thank you! It has grown over a period of time, lots of changes and designing to get to where it is today. I am a fan of Carrie Grant’s work, so you’ll find a lot of the landscaping came from her.

Inspiration? Lord of the rings, The Secret Garden, you know… those movies and books with the beautiful magical forgotten forests. This is as close as I’ll get to living in one hehe!
